Delightfully divine, the gooseflesh inducing Toyota GR Supra makes you want to sing when you allow its playful nature to harmonise with your boisterous mood.
An ultra-responsive 6-cylinder twin-turbo insists on showing off a little butt wiggle at full throttle for the grinning boy racer in you. The zest of this antidote for ageing rubs off in a flash, reminding you how a hunk feels as doting fans drool. Conceived as a sports car in its purest form, the global GR model from Toyota Gazoo Racing builds on the celebrated heritage of Toyota’s past Supra generations and original 2000GT sports car.
Driving enthusiasts love the agile and exhilarating blend of rear wheel-driven power and precision that excels due to the short wheelbase, wide track and rock-solid body. Oodles of Toyota’s sports car lineage is referenced in the design with a long bonnet, compact body and double-bubble roof. The distinctive look of the fourth generation Supra is captured in both the front and rear styling, especially in the muscular rear wings and the arc of the integrated spoiler.
Superb manoeuvrability and stability are achieved with bigger lightweight aluminum wheels, while the heritage-inspired double-bubble roof reduces drag by reducing the car’s frontal area drag, without sacrificing headroom.
Ultra-modern, functional cockpit design focusses the driver and is influenced by the layout found in single-seater race cars with additional switches located on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. Gears can be changed using paddle shifts on the steering wheel, but the eight-speed automatic transmission provides lightning-fast shifts. You can also select Normal or Sport driving modes depending on preference and the conditions. In Sport mode you can have fun tweaking the suspension, steering and transmission characteristics as you wish.
A Launch Control function enables powerful acceleration from standstill with maximum traction, helping the car reach 100 km/h in just 4,3 seconds.
An Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) enhances performance with instant response to changes in the road surface, adjusting the shock-absorber force at each wheel for excellent steering response and supple ride comfort.
Electric power steering is rack-assisted and sports-tuned, and automatically adjusts according to vehicle speed, reducing the level of effort needed at lower speeds while weighting up for greater control and stability at higher speeds.
An impressive active safety system includes ABS, Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, and Hill-start Assist Control together with Active Cornering Assist.
The GR Supra model line-up consists of two models, the GR Supra Track and GR Supra. The Track model is aimed at enthusiasts wishing to use their vehicle predominantly for performance-orientated driving and prioritises vehicle dynamics over convenience specification. Both vehicles offer features such as dual-zone automatic air conditioning, smart entry with push-button start, leather-trimmed steering wheel with switches and a digital instrument cluster as standard.
The Full Monty list of standard features include just about anything you could want and an impressive 10-speaker audio system adds the final cherry on top. Feature for feature and performance versus performance, the Supra stands tall. Unadulterated fun can be had by all, perfect balance and poise is the final ingredient in the exhilarating performance that few sports cars could challenge at the price. It is definitely perfect for all the Peter Pans out there.
